There is no one single criteria. You earn levels by many, how long youve been here, front page deals, how many deals, and overall how active you are. A +5 is not given out easily and you will notice that most of us with a +5 hsve been here since the site opened. And people need to stop taking your rep score so seriously. Anyone can build their rep by spamming deals all day long every day. Youre goal here shouldnt be worrying about a rep score or how many plusses you have.

@acidbaby,it's not a matter of us not " worrying about our rep and plusses" it's more,in my opinion,that the 5's get up front wether their deal is good or not,get a couple " friends" to plus it also and it's more visible and more likely to be clicked as opposed to a 4 with a good deal ending up on the bottom by default.
It's no secret that friends are plussing each others deals no matter what the post,I think we all are aware of that.
I believe the frustration stems from working hard to find REAL deals only to have them overshadowed due to unearned plusses.
To say reps and plusses don't matter is silly,the more plusses the more likely to be seen and clicked,which is where the money is.
That's all I have to say.

How does a +5 get you up front automatically? Nobody is getting on the front page automatically with a +5. Of course there is a cllique here that vote on each others posts. Like Ive said 1000 times. a negative rating system would alleviate all these issues. Then we can vote down deals that are garbage and being voted up by the clique.
